It’s perfectly acceptable to be scared and anxious as you are preparing for a really big surgery and life change. But if it’s any reassurance I’ve had the band, I had a lap band repair and 12 years later had the band removed and all of those surgeries went just fine. I’m having gastric bypass surgery next week and at times I get a bit anxious and that’s okay. It’s a big deal. But if you look at percentages you have a waaaaay bigger percentage of doing just fine than having a complication. Feelings are valid and okay, good or bad. But rest assured you are much more likely to be okay than not. Stop reading horror stories about surgeries that haven’t gone well and spend time thinking about what size spring clothes you are going to need. Go through a Romans catalog with your daughter and pick out fun outfits. Think about what life is going to be like in the months ahead...there is a lot of lovely new things that will be happening for you. 🥰

Thank you so much! I needed to hear this.

I feel calmer today, and I feel ready!

2 days left! I can not wait to start my new life !

The caramel ones I find kind of cloyingly sweet, but if you put them in ice and add two shots of espresso they are very good. Kind of caramel macchiatoesque. Or at least that’s what I tell myself.

Preop is Monday, so that is the last hurdle for me. I am worried something might come up on the bloodwork, or I have some crazy asymptomatic case of Covid, etc etc.

I tried a Cookies and cream Premier Protein today. I won't be buying those again. They had a taste I couldn't quite put my finger on, but I didn't enjoy. I may give the other 3 to my son. Later on, I'm going to try the strawberry creme kind...

Have my sleeve done November 10. Kind of struggling with this 2 week diet before.

It’s a hard diet. It gets better after the first few days. It’s still not fun but it does get at least manageable.

so far I'm doing pretty well on my pre-op diet...5 days in and am losing about a pound a day, although I know that losing weight isn't the point. hoping alot of the weight loss is my liver shrinkage :D:D :D After the first day it was much more manageable.

I am so hoping that as well! I have a scale that measures a whole bunch of things, and I am happy my visceral fat percentage is going down... I am more concerned about that than subcutaneous or body fat percentages. Awesome for the pound a day, though!

Hi all.

I'm wondering if there is anyone else on a pre-op diet (or who has already gone through that process) who already (prior to the diet) was not drinking pop or soda, things like that, ate mostly "balanced meals" and who is still working out or physically active? Thanks in advance 🙂

The Cookies and cream shake is just gross, IMO. The best flavors are just plain chocolate, vanilla, caramel if you add espresso, and the pumpkin spice is actually ok.

Yesterday I was informed I could have v8 on my diet and it was about the most exciting news ever. My surgeon requires a 4 week post op liquid diet as well so I was amusing myself counting out weeks and realizing it might be Christmas before I actually get to chew something again.
